Hodges University strives diligently to provide course materials to you at a rate that is less than what you would pay to purchase the same course materials independently. Beginning January 1, 2017, a required Book/Resource Fee will be charged for each course you are registered for, if there are course materials required.

Yes. By clicking here, you
will be able to view a spreadsheet that will give details about all courses,
their required course materials (including ISBN information) and the resource
fee associated with each course.
Please note that there may be
updates to the course materials and resource fees prior to the start of the
winter 2017 term.
If you are considered a
cash-paying student, the resource fees are a required fee that all cash-paying
students must pay.
If you are using Title IV
federal aid (financial aid) to pay tuition and fees, you have the right to opt
out of the resource fees and purchase the required materials on your own.
You will NOT be permitted to
use Title IV federal aid (financial aid) to purchase your required and/or optional
materials, for any/all courses.
All of your required course
materials will be your responsibility to purchase on your own.
You will be able to purchase
your course materials through the HU Virtual Store, but you will only be
permitted to pay with credit card.
Book charges will not be
applied to your student account so you will be ineligible to set up a payment
plan for any books you have to purchase.
You are required to have all
course materials purchased and received no later than the third (3) day after
the course start date.
It is not the responsibility
of HU faculty and/or staff to provide extenuating accommodations if you are
purchasing your required materials from a third party.
You don’t have to worry about
looking up your course materials on multiple external sites – we have already
done that for you!
You will have your required
course materials on the first day of classes!
You will be charged
significantly less by including the resource fees on your account rather than
using a third party, which will include retail prices, shipping costs, taxes,
etc. – the resource fees are one low rate per course.
You will have access to our
customer service team through Ed Map, the University Store and Student Account
Services if you need assistance or have questions about your materials.
You will be eligible to use
your financial aid funds to help pay the resource fees, if applicable.
You will be eligible to sign
up for a payment plan if financial aid cannot cover the entire cost, which may
include the resource fees.
